WSR 13-16-029
[Filed July 29, 2013, 11:48 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The current certification reinstatement process in WAC 139-06-140 does not outline steps for filing a subsequent petition for reinstatement of certification after a hearing panel has denied the initial petition for reinstatement.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.101.080.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The rule change would allow for a subsequent petition for reinstatement of certification to be filed three years after the date of the entry of the hearing panel's final written order denying the prior petition for reinstatement.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The Washington state criminal justice training commission (WSCJTC) regulates this process.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Sonja Hirsch, Rules Coordinator, WSCJTC, 19010 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA 98148, e-mail, phone (206) 835-7372. Commissioners will be advised of the proposed rule changes via e-mail. Proposed changes will also be listed on the agency web site.
